Dear Parents,

We are writing to announce the "kick-off" of an exciting fundraising event at Ross Elementary School. The proceeds from this fundraiser will be used to directly benefit your child's educational experience at our school. We are hoping that this will be our only fundraiser with the help and support of the entire school.

We would like to start this fundraiser by asking for donations of postage to be used for the mailers that we will be sending out. A copy of the postage donation form was sent home with your child on the first day of school. As a way of saying "thank you" to Ross Elementary School families who donate toward our mailing costs...your name will be placed into a drawing for a $25 gift card. We will announce the winning name at our race event!

On Friday, October 14, 2016, Ross Elementary PTO will be conducting its third annual "Race for Education." The purpose will be to raise funds for field trips, assemblies, and classroom resources.

Students will walk or jog around a designated area as many times as possible in a one-hour period. Each student will raise funds by asking sponsors to contribute a tax deductible donation to the PTO.

Today, your child will be coming home with a "Kick-off Packet" of information about our "Race for Education." Please review the packet carefully. Your participation is essential to the success of the program.

Our PTO's goal is to raise $15,000. You can enable us to reach this goal by spending a minimal amount of time filling out a label sheet with the names and addresses of potential sponsors. The label sheet and instructions will be included with the "Kick-off Packet" that your child brings home today.

Ross Elementary PTO will reach its goal of $15,000, if we receive an average of ten (10) label names per student. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support. For more information, please visit:

  • Mrs. Lori Bednarek, Principal
  • Melissa Lukavitch and Nancy Walsh, Race Coordinators
  • Ross Elementary PTO Board Members & Volunteers
